Another year has come and gone...

Limited rail movements as the track infrastructure has succumbed to an all time low....

Please log any freight movements you may see in the yeat 2016: location, time, power units and freight cars.

Thank you!

Yesterday, when I was in Nanaimo, I stopped by Welcox for a quick look. They just finishing unloading and loading the barge, spotted in the cars unloaded was a SRY caboose, not in a good location for a photo. Sometihing new and different for the fans on Vancouver Island. Looked like a former BC Hydro Caboose.

Maybe this has something to do with starting serious track repairs and having a rolling office on wheels.

Post by torch on Jan 15th, 2016, 6:37am
Perhaps the reason for bringing the caboose over is so crews can now make the run to superior and back without having to run around the train after. They can just push back through Nanaimo with a crew member riding the platform. Who knows. Just speculation.

Post by MinionII on Feb 1st, 2016, 10:28pm
How many cars can Superior's spur hold?

It sounds like perhaps there were no cars in the spur before the seven were dropped off...

That's a heck of a long train for the island now ;D


EDIT: Google maps says 7...though I can't recall how far the spur extends. I've checked it out, but that was 10+ years ago. I have pictures somewhere...

Post by Chris_C on Feb 2nd, 2016, 12:48am
The siding can hold 7 , 3 can be unloaded at a time. The lack of a barge a few weeks back resulted in Superior emptying all their cars with no replacements on the island so SRVI pulled everything last Tuesday leaving the siding empty.  

They seem to be bouncing around near the maximum a single barge load per week can handle with all the trans-loading in the yard.

Barge was in this morning likely due to the holiday. Superior was switched around noon.

Also the Jingle Pot Road crossing lost its center crossing gate / lights / light stand over the weekend. Looks like someone drove straight into it?  ::)

The MOW Crew have been busy working towards Wellington with the ballast regulator, tamper, and tie replacer for the past couple weeks now. The track is looking much better than it has in the past 20 years. Looks like they were just finishing up south of Bowen Road today before the freight interrupted them.

The green paint has appeared from the North side of Bowen Road to Wellington Siding in the past week... so I suspect they will be working there for the next few days to get everything nice and clean for April 8th.

Last week they ran out in the morning around 10 AM - Tuesday IIRC . I am just up the block from Superior and they seem to be fairly consistent with 2 times a week. The long weekends sometimes screw it up though

Probably the brush cutter - I don't think a locomotive has gone south of Stockett since service to top shelf was put on hold.

Unfortunately we cant see anything here - but most of the time they are pretty easily heard. I am surprised they returned light the other day, they must have shoved the cars all the way in as it looked like at least 1 was missing.

3 cars northbound for Superior Propane. Returned with 2 cars. This trip was about twice as long as normal. I wonder if there was an accident of some sort. Also I was by the Northfield Rd. crossing today and there has been a recent accident there with the north signal stand looking like it must of been hit by a truck. It was still standing but at an angle with it's base pulled out of the ground. Other road signs were also damaged and knocked over.

3 cars northbound for Superior Propane. Returned with 2 cars. This trip was about twice as long as normal. I wonder if there was an accident of some sort. Also I was by the Northfield Rd. crossing today and there has been a recent accident there with the north signal stand looking like it must of been hit by a truck. It was still standing but at an angle with it's base pulled out of the ground. Other road signs were also damaged and knocked over.


I noticed the crossing a couple weeks ago... it looks like a semi truck and trailer tried to make that sharp turn off the highway and took out the crossing.

They definitely were slow today - I didn't hear any sirens - whatever kept them, it was north of Superior.

That's a pretty reasonable train for Superior.

Would they have pulled all 7 empties directly from Superior? Or pulled some previously left at Wellington?

Prior post was light engines both ways, so they must have shifted things around, why wouldn't they haul back empties at that time?

Keep up the posts Goose! I know being the lone contributor and not much variance in the traffic can be dis-heartening. But we are all watching and hoping for a surge in traffic.

Thanks for the kind words. I'll keep reporting but wonder sometimes how long there will be anything to report.
